Flatbed Press

A configuration of press used in letterpress printing in which an impression cylinder carries the paper or other substrate into contact with an inked typeform or flat printing plate mounted to a flatbed. See Letterpress: Flatbed Press. A flatbed press is also used for generating color proofs before the job is transferred to a large production press. See Flatbed Proof.
